Liverpool cruised to a comfortable 3-0 win over Bournemouth to maintain their commanding lead in the Premier League table.

A heavily-changed Liverpool team still made light work of a struggling Bournemouth to pile the pressure on rivals Leicester City and Manchester City in the Premier League title battle.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain broke the deadlock in the 35th-minute following a superb pass from captain Jordan Henderson.

Then, just a minute before the break, Naby Keita doubled Liverpool’s lead after a brilliant backheel assist by Mohamed Salah. The duo teamed up again in the second half, with the former on target instead.

So the Reds have temporarily, at least, moved 11 points clear at the top of the Premier League standings.

Now we give you the five main talking points from Saturday afternoon’s action at the Vitality Stadium.
